Default Renee - Everything Fila!

Hi Renee,
First off I'm sorry if someone has harassed you to do this already, I did a little search and couldn't find more than the odd thread here and there.

Second, to reassure you, this is in no way declaring any intent to own a Fila in even the most remotely near future. Is it a possibility? Yes, but many, many, MANY years down the road when the proper research has been done and my life is much more suited.

The reason I'm posting this is I just have to smile at all of your posts involving your Filas, and your day to day life with them. The little stories and anecdotes about living with the breed tends to make me giggle. You are a very good storyteller, and I can tell you are just head over heels for your dogs.

Please keep up with posting those little stories that make me smile, and if you have any information, photos (yesssss please!!), or any more stories about how life is living with a Fila Brasiliero, please post! You have no idea how much these little posts can brighten up my day.

Thank you!

lol I had a vision of you searing "fila" in renee's posts. You'd have thousands of hits! No wonder you can't find anything.

I'm sure you'll get lots of info. Buckshot and filarotten have fila's too.

Oooh thank you!

And God I find it so sad that people are trying to dilute one of the foundation characteristics of the breed. That makes me angry. So many good breeds have been wrecked by trying to do that...

Kharma's puppies are already in demand
Good for you for obtaining a puppy and continuing to endorse the working dog I'm sure they make fantastic working dogs.

This one was pretty funny . . . http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=289

I'll have to find some more of them.

Right now, Miss Shiva is on my short list. She's fully aware that Kharma's weakness is the cows and that every morning, walking Kharma on the leash because she can't be turned loose when the cows are visible from the house, begins with stepping on the little front stoop, holding tightly on the end of the leash, and assuring Kharma that "all of the cowsies are very good cowsies this morning; most excellent cowsies."

Shiva lives to get Kharma in trouble.

Most mornings Shiva will wait until we're out in the yard and she'll start barking from the window, trying to get Kharma roused up. This morning, Shiva decided to take a different approach.

She waited until I had Kharma halfway out of the door, hanging onto the leash, then Shiva bulled her way between my legs (good thing I have really long legs), hurtled OVER Kharma, and charged into the front pasture after the cows she'd just been walking among peacefully ten minutes before.

It was all just too much for Kharma. She lunged, yanking my hand into the door jamb, scraping the side of my hand between my forefinger and thumb across the metal latch plate that sticks out. I left several deep gouges of my hand hanging on that metal plate . . . Blood everywhere.

Kharma stopped immediately as soon as she sensed I was hurt, and man, did it ever hurt. And it's going to get sore and stiff for a few days. I drove in with several layers of paper towel wrapped around my hand, soaked through by the time I got to the store. I'm the only one here today, so I called my Mom to get her to do the nurse thing (she's an RN) and bring some betadine ointment and bandages, so now I've got my right hand taped up, looking like I've had surgery on it.

I'll be doing a lot of things left handed for the next few days, looks like.

Shiva got to spend her day in the laundry room and when I get in tonight she will be sheepish and doing her very best, most special, intensive sucking-up. Kharma will be rubbing her nose in it for the next few days too.

It's impossible to stay irritated at Shiva for very long.

She knows it too . . .

I've really grown to love this breed . . . Which is odd considering my normal taste in dogs. I've always preferred dogs with a rather sharp, intense look and a biddable nature (Border Collies, nearly all the Shepherds, Dobermans, etc) but Filas captured my heart too. When the time comes that I need a large guardian, I don't see myself getting any other breed.

Lol Breeze. If Renee would allow it, when the time comes that I'm ready for my Fila I'll be pestering her for a Kharma puppy too.

Oh my Renee I don't mean to be laughing at your injuries and misfortune but I can just picture the way those two interact and it cracks me up.
I really hope your hand is ok though, and I hope Shiva keeps up with the sucking up for a day or two so you can have a break
